All Signals Red

All signals were indeed red -- very red -- this sunny November afternoon in Pasadena, and the Gold Line's rails were uncharacteristically rusty.  Metro's entire network, all modes, was shut down by a mechanics' strike; it was a strike that lasted for weeks. 

And it was a major hardship for those who relied on the system.  And it was not at all a pleasant experience for this photographer, for whom the main purpose of this trip to Southern California had been to ride and document the then quite-new route.
